Olympic National Park - Hurricane Ridge

Pacific Northwest Coast

Everyone will enjoy the road up to Hurricane Ridge, but birdwatchers will appreciate opportunities to find a nice variety of birds: Varied Thrush and Pacific Wren at the Heart of the Hills campground, and Sooty Grouse, American Pipit, and Townsend's Solitaire at the summit. Vistas along the road and near the visitors center offer opportunities to spot soaring raptors.
